I'm fine with the plan as far as I understand it, but can you clarify 
something for me?

While 3.0 won't be backward compatible in that it requires Java 5.0, 
will it be otherwise backward compatible? That is, if I compile with 
2.9, eliminate all deprecations and use Java 5, can I drop 3.0 in and 
expect it to work without any further changes?

I think that is what I am reading wrt the plan.
